Leadership Initiative

Our vision:

To be the world’s leader in connecting leadership research to experiential leader development and practical solutions to leadership problems.

Our Mission:

We achieve our vision through:

OUTREACH: Enhance Fisher’s and Ohio State’s outreach efforts by connecting with businesses and civic organizations around leadership. We do this by developing engagement and communication activities that are meant to reach leaders ‘where they are’ and using approaches that they find engaging and useful.

STUDENT DEVELOPMENT: Provide unrivaled leadership development for our students. We do this by scaling leadership development so as to achieve the greatest good for the greatest number and by offering signature programs which deliver deep, immersive, transformational experiences for those students.

RESEARCH: Support leadership scholarship and make it more relevant and accessible to those who can benefit from the knowledge. We do this by publishing and helping to support research (especially interdisciplinary and practice-oriented research), training new scholars on how to teach leadership, and leading the field of leadership toward more relevance in an age where most learn about leadership through ‘airport books’ and TED talks.

CONNECTION: Collaborate with Ohio State units and programs to create a more integrated campus. We do this by elevating existing leadership content and providing experiential, evidence-based pedagogy.
